UKTAG first published guidance on the classification of ecological potential in 2008. This guidance has been reviewed which has led to proposals to better define a default flow regime for good ecological potential in rivers downstream of reservoirs and their intakes. The proposals include identification of those flows considered to be of ecological importance throughout the year and the criteria to be used to implement them. They will help the regulatory bodies determine if a heavily modified water body, affected by water impoundment, is at good ecological potential, and if not, identify what improvement measures need to be implemented.
